    Any reorganisation needs to address identity issues. The new councils need to be called "districts" or "regions", not counties and boroughs The lieutenancy areas need to be realigned to match the 13 counties and the historic town councils should be allowed to be called "borough" councils.
    Anything is better than the 'shire' titling which is an English invention. Let us hope we don't hark back to the 'Monmouthshire' tag again to cover the Old Islwyn and now Caerphilly/Torfaen areas... Re-establish what is the norm now anyway GWENT. Does ANYONE ever use Newport, Mon ? Colonial throwback...."
